    Dinner! 2012

    Are those canned snails? Disappointed you took the easy way out.
  2. You mention on your blog that you got there by train (because Sonnora was too complicated to get to). Schloss Berg seemed similarly difficult to me when I was considering going last summer--would you mind saying where you left from/which trains you took? Thanks.
  3. Has anyone had any luck buying from them since this thread was posted?
  4. warm. they heat it tableside at the restaurant. there is also a recipe in the book Haute Cuisine Paris.
  5. Has anyone found a place to purchase boilable bags in quantities less than 1000 (like 100, maybe)? I have occasionally seen 25-packs from VacMaster, but they come out to around $0.40 per bag (1000-packs are usually ~$0.08-0.015/bag).
  6. I like these.

    So do you tell Passard to go back to the kitchen when he comes out in denim overalls and boots? ← The last time I was at Le Bernardin (in March of this year), Eric Ripert was sporting some nice denim threads and boots. It didn't bother me a bit. Rather, I was simply glad to see that he cared enough to show up. ← I totally agree. It just seems contradictory to me on one hand criticize the lack of formality of one restaurant (which I have no problems with) while at the same time heaping accolades on Arpege. I think the only 2 or 3* that I've been to that is more casual is Can Roca.

    Utilization of ginger

    Scrape with a spoon to peel it, then microplane.

    The Modern at MoMA

    From wikipedia so it's guaranteed to be true.
  13. A note for everyone that seems to be in Barcelona and looking for places to go, I'm just back from Paco Meralgo, and they should be open Saturday and Sunday. I ate at Cinc Sentis today and suckling pig is the meat course on the Sensations menu. They will let you substitute it for oxtail, or supplement the oxtail to the end for 11 Euros.
  14. Hmm..I tried a lot there and everything was good. They had fried rabbit ribs as a special that were great and I would definitely order again. I enjoyed the tripe (callos, i think) as well (first time I've had it). Croquetas were great as well. I think if you just order whatever sounds good to you you'll end up having a really solid meal. And the bill was only like 45 euros for 6 tapa, dessert, 4 cavas and coffee.
  15. I just got back to my hotel from an excellent meal at Inopia tonight. I didn't see any indication that they would be closed this Saturday (closed all sundays), but you may want to call to check. I believe it is walk-in only.
